Notes

Mastering Notes
- Software applied - WaveLab 5.0 > iZotope Ozone 3 > CD Wave Editor 1.9 > c8brain [24/96 to 16/44.1 Downsample] > FLAC [Level 8]
- Peaks lowered slightly with Nomad Limiting Amplifier, along with slight RMS level increase.
- Processed about 100 handclaps to reduce their relative decibel level, most noticeably at the beginning of d1t03.
- d2t02 - Beginning of "Lost Sailor" was cut and faded in.
- No patch sources were used.
- Cross-fades were applied at tape flips before at pauses between songs when necessary.

Notes
- d1t03 - Slightly noticeable stuttering effect during "Friend Of The Devil" due to processing of handclaps during mastering; mainly noticeable during beginning of song.
- d2t02 - Missing lyrics "Compass card is spinning" and some amount of instrumental lead-in at beginning of "Lost Sailor".
- d2t04 - Jerry vocal problems during "Terrapin Station", going into the fifth verse after the first lead guitar solo. Jerry either blanks out or there's a technical issue. They play the complete verse phrasing, plus some - but with instruments only - then recover and Jerry does the lyrics.

After listing to a series of outstanding Glassberg audience tapes this one suffers a bit from location and the acoustics of the hall. Don't get me wrong, this is still a very good audience tape, but the previous handful of shows were simply exquisite.

Thinking about it, most Fox tapes I've heard have some boom. I've seen it but never been in it for a show, so its hard to say what the cause is. I know it's highly regarded as a hall, so perhaps it was just tough to tape in.

By this time the tapers had mastered the art and there was a plentiful supply, often as good as the soundboard. I remember talking to other tapers at shows about the esoterics of microphone pick-up patterns and the precise alignment of the mics to the source speakers - too close and you started to hear stage monitors, too distant and the boom of the hall came into play. All of this is before taping was officially allowed, which would come, but not for a few more years.

This doesn't appear to be an FOB from the notes and just listen to the magic! I guess I give out a lot of 5 stars but then again I don't rate crappy sources much. This one sounds terrific.

It appears the Dead hit the Fox on both the spring and fall tours in 80. That's pretty unusual for a venue to get a stop on more than one tour in the same year--especially in the south--although I'm sure its not unprecedented. Anyhoo, its basically a fun show. Jer forgets lyrics in a few sons, but his playing is kick ass. Barry G's AUD recordings from this era are awesome!!
